perletwo: losh big universe big trouble (legion - big universe)
[personal profile] perletwo posting in [community profile] scans_daily
Hi ho Legion fans, 4 pages from LOSH #17 here. Remember the last page of last ish, how a complex quark relay station quietly goes about its business...until suddenly it doesn't? Well, as David said in Prometheus, big things have small beginnings, and so to this ish's title, "The Beginning of the End"!

We open with a badly shaken Phantom Girl materializing out of a crashed starcruiser onto a desolate world i shall acronymically dub BEON with primitive inhabitants she can't understand; the same total system failure that dropped the cruiser from the skies also took out their translators. She goes looking for the rest of her team.

Poor Sun Boy. He always seems to get the worst of these big epics.

Polar Boy goes wandering frustratedly around what he calls the Butt End of Nowhere (see what I did there?), making salient observations that belie the silliness of his Subby origins as he goes, and makes a startling discovery.

On Ultra Boy's home planet Rimbor, Ultra Boy, Glorith and Chameleon Boy were in Urban Camouflage Mode (tm damian wayne) searching for the jailbroken Tharok when all at once cruisers started falling from the sky and planetary support systems began failing on a massive scale.

Yes, the mastermind behind all this is in fact Tharok, leader of the Fatal Five, currently visiting with the Persuader, who has retired to a small planetoid at the hind end of the U.P. Never the prettiest peach in the basket, Tharok is looking like this now, BTW.

His master plan is to strike at the Legionnaires' homeworlds first to keep them distracted.

So what could possibly make the marooned Legionnaires' plight worse? How about the Promethian Giant choosing this exact moment to wake up? (Perhaps those quark relays were keeping it imprisoned?) Or if that won't do you, how about Validus landing at the crash site on the hunt for the team?

BTW, as of the end of this ish, only three of the Fatal Five are accounted for - no sign yet of Mano or Emerald Empress or of replacements for same.

NEXT ISSUE tagline: It Gets Worse. Whooboy.

Incidentally, anybody heard any word on where/when the Legion Lost crew is likely to fetch up next?

...Welp, this series is definitely not boring anymore. O_O Gonna pour some down for my homeboy Sun Boy. Didn't even get a proper funeral. :(

As for the Legion Lost crew, nothing has been said yet. I'm kinda hoping they might show up in Giffen's Threshold at some point, though.

Well, given his powers, I doubt cremation would be an option.

Oh no, that's not even the concern. Let's just say that it's implied that the locals of this planet aren't quite picky about the kind of meat they eat...

Well, again, good luck trying to cook him. And Dirk Tartare would be a tough sell methinks.

Would his power still be in him after he dies? I would think all the heat would just dissipate.

Not his flame-generating power, so much as the fact his body had to have been flameproof to allow him to use his powers without incinerating himself. That seems less likely to dissipate because he's died, it would perhaps be more like a physiological thing.
